Sue Cretarolo
A reverence for the past inspires my work in every medium. Time and time again I'm drawn by the way the most humble objects and common images -- a weathered chair, a rusted piece of metal, the layers of paint revealed on an old wall -- can create connections between past and present, reminding us that we're all on a singular journey.

With special attention to scale, color, surface, and graphic appeal, I achieve the layers and deep patinas that characterize my work. I seek to create timeless pieces that suggest the eclectic character and rich subtleties of everyday life.
